Nike doing their best to avoid the fiasco that was the LeBron XI. Him opting to play in the Soldiers rather than the XI was not a good look, especially considering he was doing so due to comfort.

Every time I heard the words "Michael Jordan's wife" together I immediately think of Juanita. Sorry Mike, I know you've moved. It's about time I did the same.

@FutureTomorrow_ It had nothing to do with plenty being made for everyone. It has actually been proven that Nike/JB actually produced more sneakers per release than they did 10+ years ago. 


Nike/JB catered their production to a niche market as sneakers and the idea of being a sneaker head was not nearly as popular as it is now. The marketing focus was still driven towards the athlete by the athlete and the casual wearers were not seen as valuable enough of a money grab as they have now because a great percentage of those who did wear sneakers casually usually didn't buy $100+ sneakers anyway; and if they did, not several pair.


Fast forward to present day and sneakers now have become an essential fashion component, especially "heat." The "sneaker head/hipster" has become a very dominant culture and may even be the most dominant pop culture as we speak. Along with it comes the increased demand for highly sought after sneakers so people can play the part.

I've always wondered if PE retros for Jordan Brand signees have more advanced construction and technology than the general release retail pairs? Because from my experiences playing in the recent renditions of Jordan retros cannot be considered reliable for the overall health and well-being of a million dollar athlete.

Some of them are nice. Don't see them replacing anything in my usual boot rotation though. If I ever go to the Alps I'll consider a pair of these.

4's looking good. Really the only thing on my radar. I also heard the Chicago 1's will be remastering in OG form as well. Those will be a definite cop for sure.

@hrbomber1113 The article never stated that this sneaker wasn't an OG colorway. I'm sure they knew that. They used the term "away" as a means to signify or suggest an unofficial tag for the sneaker and you went in.

Not a true "remaster" unless they are a 1:1 version of its predecessor. That means "Nike Air" on the heel if applicable.

Levi's and Sneakernews seen an opportunity to cross promote. Can't blame Sneakernews for jumping on it. I don't feel like Sneakernews watered down their brand by doing this. As long as this sneaker blog doesn't transition into a full-time fashion blog I'm cool with it.

So with this new deal place standard edition KD's should be hitting the $200 mark any time now. I know he has always vowed to keep his signature sneakers "affordable" but its pretty much a given that the retail value of his sneakers will significantly increase more than they initially would have anyway. I also wonder what kind of precedent does this set for other superstar athletes on Nike's roster when they become apparel brand free agents.

Well said @HeroinSoap. It's no secret Under Armour's bread is buttered on the football side of things and it's football merchandising will be carrying the weight for sometime now. Their equipment tech and performance wear is second to none right now.

This all boils down to a "risk" by Under Armour to push it's basketball branding to another level, one that could possibly rival it's football department. If you guys think this is all about shoes you're are sadly mistaking. It's about tech wear in general, a market that UA has been largely successful in.

Don't really care much for "sneaker legacies" and think they are vastly overrated. I hope Durant makes the best decision for him without factoring in a "sneaker legacy."

Why didn't they just make the Super Fly's Blake's official signature with his namesake, logo and all? Is he not worthy of a signature shoe? I mean dude has even been in the MVP discussion over the last couple of seasons.
